    I've already contacted them, I'm awaiting their response. At least there's a record that I contacted them right after receiving it.
    Damn UPS sucks. There's always a problem with them.

    Update: Amazon told me to try it for 30 days, and if it fails, I'll get a full refund

    Well, I'm getting 30°C on desktop, 55-65°C on games. So far it runs everything at 60 FPS in 4K, and I'm happy.
    No BSODs or artifacts so far.
    I'll do a longer playing session tonight, but I'm staying positive.:rolleyes:

    Finally finished my build after few delays.

    I noticed the EK waterblock for the FE manual was updated but did not include enough thermal pads for the coils, so I had to order some extra thermal pads and redo the GPUs in my loop, and now I've noticed a crack in the EK monoblock, so I will have to replace that when new parts come.

    So far the GPUs are working perfectly with a solid 42c underload.
    Got the cards overclocked so far to boost 2.200Mz, touch wood they don't fail now!!

    I got zotac RTX2080Ti for two weeks now. Played Diablo 3, FFXB, PUBG, and Shadow of Tomb Raider with no issue.
    Card is OCed with the OC scanner from Afetrburner and Mem OC +500 (7500MHZ).
    However, last night I decided to try The Division using DX12 API. I start to see artifact on the top half of the screen, removing OC does not fix this.
    When I try with DX11 there is no artifact, I played the game for an hour just to make sure.

    Anyone that have the game can try to replicate this with your RTX2080Ti?
    I’m wondering if the problem is my card, the game, or driver issue.

    Temps idle is at 35C and load maxed at 65C

    We live in a time when 1000 likes or retweets can end careers, so it's not surprise that a few loud RMAers can taint a videocard reputation.

    Mind you, Caseking's numbers are solely based on AIB cards. The biggest complaint for dying cards is for NV's FE edition.

    That's the point, this whole thing has spiralled out of control because of an as of yet unknown quantity of problems with the FE.

    We'll never get FE failure rates from Nvidia I wouldn't imagine although I still doubt they were anywhere as near as bad as some would have us believe.

    Some youtubers have become a cancer with their blatant agendas and brand loyalty, they like to call out Nvidia and Intel on an almost daily basis but it is high time some of them were called out because they do nothing to help situations like these.

    They serve only to spread FUD in pursuit of clicks which ultimately confuses customers and poisons the market with unsubstantiated bullsh!t.

    At the end of the day, we should only care about our own 2080Ti's failure rates :D
    Mine is still alive on its second date.
    I doubt I'll OC it over the factory OC, unless there's a game I really want to play without some heavy trade-offs. So far, no such cases.

    Yah, that's another thing, we have no idea how many of these problems were caused by PEBKAC.

    a simple guess, static hands.

    Static hands, incompetent OCing, bad air flow and the list goes on.

    Again, I'm not saying PEBKAC is the only reason there are problems, I'm simply saying we do not have any numbers for the FE and the numbers for non FE cards that we do have lead me to believe that there is no inherent problem with them at all.

    What's giving me a pause is the fact that out of hundreds of cards sent to reviewers, only 1 (or 2?) died. Am I getting this right?
    I'm not saying its PEKBAC either; no opinion atm frankly.

    Apparently, many 'DOA' cards are simply a driver related problem which should be easily fixed by a driver update (or switching monitors) according to GN.
